Bird River Paddle for Protection
The Wilderness Committee is getting water lovers together for the 4th annual Paddle for Protection day trip on the lower Bird River on September 24 – World Rivers Day.
This is a chance to reflect on the wonderful wild waterways of Manitoba and think about how to preserve and protect our treasured natural heritage.
Who: anyone who can paddle, including families and kids
What: a paddling day trip with lunch included and talk of protecting our water
Where: the lower Bird River about 1.5 hours northeast of Winnipeg
Why: It’s World Rivers Day! The lower Bird River, and many waterways in Manitoba, are under threat, and need our help to stay healthy.
The route is 12 km downstream in easy current with two portages (150 and 300 meters). If you don’t have your own boat or paddling partner we can find you both. The cost is $20, including a hot lunch.
Transportation from Winnipeg will be coordinated.
Register before September 19 by submitting your waiver form and paying. Our trips fill up so sign up now. Call or email our office: (204) 942-9292 or contactmb | wildernesscommittee ! org.
